Sochi Olympics: Talking figure skating fashion with designer Nick Verreos

If you’re watching any of the figure skating or ice dancing events at the Sochi Olympics this year, you may not remember what a figure skater’s jumps and spins look like after her routine. But, thanks to sequins, sparkle and some <ahem> creativity, you can probably recall some of the costumes you saw on the ice.

Most skaters don’t exactly play it boring or conservative. Classy sometimes, yes, but other costumes probably make you wonder whether the athletes borrowed their outfits from a bad – yet flashy – high school play.

Join us Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. PST for a chat about some of the good, the bad and the ridiculous when it comes to figure skating fashion at this Olympics. Nick Verreos, co-creator of the clothing line Nikolaki and a contestant on Season 2 of "Project Runway," will be offering his critiques, and I’ll even be busting out some of my outfits from when I competed as a figure skater.

We promise you won’t be disappointed.
